Jessica Stam Fall 2011 Inspired Makeup Look
Tonight I just had to get this blog post up. I am just super excited for it, since it is fall related. Well, if you don't know one of my favorite all time model is Jessica Stam. So a few nights ago I was looking up Jessica Stam and came across the beautiful above picture. I totally love her makeup, it is very simple but it is very bold at the same time.It is perfect for those chilly fall days. And you do not have to use the exact same products I use to create this look, you can totally substitute it to whatever you want. Today I am using all Urban Decay products, except for the tools.
1.) As always, start off by priming your eyelid. Take Urban Decay Primer Potion in Eden and prime it evenly all over your eyes and the lower lash line, as well as the inner corner.
2.) Take a flat shader with Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Blaze and pad that all over your lid up to the crease and even higher as a transitional color, but leave a little space for highlight.
3.) Take a blending brush with Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Polyester Bride and just blend out any harsh line and to also act as a highlight.
4.) As for liner, for her upper lash line it looks like she used a medium dark brown eyeshadow using it as a liner and she also brought it onto her lower lash line. So take Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Darkhorse with an angle liner brush and just line your upper lash line and lower lash line.
5.) The last step for the eyeshadows is to take a small pencil brush with Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Virgin and highlight your inner corner.
6.) For the actual liners, she had a black liner on her tide line and she had a black liner on her water line as well and she smudge it a little bit to her lower lash line.
7.) The last step for the eyes are just to curl your lashes and apply a coat of your favorite mascara to your upper and lower lashes.
1.) For her cheeks, she had on a really really light pink blush on, that at first I thought she had no blush on. So take a blush brush or your fingers and take Urban Decay Afterglow Glide-On Cheek Tint in Quickie and apply it to the back of your cheekbones really lightly. So use a light hand.
1.) The first steps is that you want to make sure your lips are moisturize and there are no dryness or flaky lips, because we are using a dark lip color.
2.) Her lips are a pink berry rose color. To achieve that take Urban Decay Lip Stick in Buzzkill and just apply it out of the tube or with your finger or lip brush. It looks like she didn't have any gloss on so we are just going to stop it right here.
